Yeah I'd agree with Jamers & Jezza...oops I mean Jerry and say that the White Album bootlegs are my favs. I have this Blackbird bootleg that - oooooh I can't put it into words how much I love it!!!! And I love my Yer Blues one too. They all rock.
I love The White Album...bootleg or non-bootleg!!!

Default What is everyone\'s favorite bootleg?

This could be for any number of reasons: sound quality, song selection or sentimental value (were at the recorded show, 1st boot you ever bought, etc.)

I have a 3-way tie:

Beatles at the Beeb, Vol. 3 (Pyramid)
Air Time (Subway)
Unsurpassed Masters, Vol. 1 (Yellow Dog)

Wow, the old Pyramid Beeb set. That goes waaay back. The Unsurpassed Masters are also classics, but I've never heard of that Air Time one, or the Subway label either.

My favorites...gee, too many to mention. The White Album demos are pretty sweet, and the Apple rooftop show is way up there too. After that, any pure studio outtakes get me every time.

Jerry,

Air Time is mainly a collection of BBC stuff, but it also includes the complete Swedish TV show performance. I have it on vinyl. It's one of my faves because it was one of the first boots I ever bought where the sound quality didn't absolutely suck!

Review by: Pasadena On Monday, February 28, 2000 at 13:04:30 (CST)

I have the version with the paper insert sleeve. What a pleasant surprise this album was! From the looks of it, I didnt expect much. However, after putting on the turntable i was shocked to find the quality to be excellent! The 63 sweden show is still one of my favorite live beatle recordings to listen to. And its nice to have this album since anthology only included part of this performance. The bbc stuff is excellent as well.


Review by: Charlie Hangley On Wednesday, August 02, 2000 at 12:02:10 (CDT)

This is one of the all-time fave boots I own. The Swedish show is an eye-opener, and it's good to hear the early stuff without all the screaming. Although most of this has been made redundant by the official releases (ANTHOLOGY 1 & BBC respectively), I love this listen.

i really like any version of "dig it" except the phil spector version. how could he cut down such a brilliant improvisation. down with phil spector!

there's an awesome version of dig it where john lists of all the songs that were supposed to be on the get back album. he's so great.

I know it cost quite a bit to collect bootlegs, but all of the ones I have were free.

One of my favourite bootleg series, although I don't think as a whole it had a lot of new material when the series came out, is the 'Alternate' series from Walrus, which I like as a label anyway.
And I like the Odeon digipak series as well -I have 'em all apart from one, the Decca Tapes, which I can't seem to get anywhere after I once saw it and left it there because I opted to buy others - grrr.

On the whole I like alternate studio stuff much better than live material. Of the Beatles solo material, I love the Making Of All Things Must Pass box set (Midnight Beat), as well as the Alternate Lennon albums on the JL label - The Dream Is Over, Alternate Imagine (digipak), More Mind Games (digipak), Over Walls Under Bridges, and A Heart Play.
